In Jesus’ teachings concerning the Beatitudes, which means “attitudes be,” He taught about many subjects in Chapters 5 and 6 of Matthew. In Chapter 6:16-18 He gave instructions on how to fast and its rewards.
Matthew 6:16-18 – “Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast.
